Shelter’s program for Amsterdam Dance Event 2018 has been announced today. Yet again the club will be curating an immense series of events to span the five nights of ADE from Wednesday 17th to Sunday 21st October. This year marks the club’s third year as part of ADE, with each night being hosted in conjunction with some of the most distinguished labels and promoters in the Netherlands, Europe, and beyond.
New to Shelter’s ADE program this year are Odd Fantastic and Dance With Pride, as well as Clubfavourite Vault Sessions, however Shelter will also be rekindling last year’s ADE partnerships with Rush Hour and VBX. Artists you can expect to see behind the wheels of steel this year include Avalon Emerson, Dr. Rubinstein, Simo Cell, Antal, Hunee, Young Marco, Surgeon, Karenn, Ø [Phase] and many, many more.
Shelter opens its 2018 ADE program on Wednesday with a fundraiser event co-hosted by Odd Fantastic and Dance With Pride. Crowning this very special opening night is a b2b between Avalon Emerson and Dr. Rubinstein, joined by a promising artist from the French vanguard, Simo cell. Local strength represented by Shelter resident Carlos Valdes and Mary Lake.
Dance With Pride aims to reunify electronic music with queer culture, the goal for this event is to raise money for the new Buddy Project of Project Queer Welfare. Shelter will donate 2,75 euros from every sold ticket and RA will donate 1,25 from the service fee of every sold ticket. In the months leading up to the party we will introduce the project further.
Thursday sees Amsterdam’s beloved and esteemed Rush Hour showcase its deepest crate-diggers and most sensational selectors in the city and beyond, in the forms of Antal, Hunee, Young Marco, and a special live show trifecta featuring Soichi Terada, Kuniyuki, and Sauce81.
Vault Sessions takes the helm on Friday 19th to curate a massive 20 hours of uncompromising and state-of-the-art Techno. This program features the perfect mixture of seasoned veterans and hot-shot new kids on the block, with performances from Karenn (Live), Ø [Phase], Antigone, DJ Nobu, Oscar Mulero, Surgeon (performing a very rare DJ Set for the occasion), DJ Nobu, Svreca, and Shelter favourite Juan Sanchez.
Come Saturday Night, Vault Sessions hands the basement over to that other family close to Shelter: VBX. After much praise and popularity they are back again this year with Praslesh, the coupling of Raresh and Praslea, as well as Japan’s hotly-tipped Fumiya Tanaka, Italy’s Francesco del Garda, VBX spokesman, Ferro and Obrani’s Kristina. VBX will oversee proceedings at Shelter until midday Sunday.
And for the finale, Shelter will host its own ADE Closing Party – details of which are to arrive soon..
